Treatment Plan Vs. Business Plan

We practice in a broken health care system. Some providers might not want to suggest chiropractic care to their patient, even if they think it could help, because they are afraid their patient will becomes part of some ones business plan and not have condition specific treatment plan. This does not have to be the case. Chiropractic is based on the bodies ability to heal itself . The focus is finding and correcting the spinal subluxation which interferes with the normal neurological function of the body. The question is what is an appropriate treatment plan. The answer is very case specific. There has to be procedures in place to help determine if the care is helping. This will be different in the acute case as apposed to the chronic case. In the acute case typically you should see some good improvement in the objective and subjective complaints in two to three visits.
